**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

(l – 5)(b+3) = lb – 9 …. (1)

(l+ 3)(b+2) = lb + 67 …… (2)

(1) => lb – 5b + 3l -15 = lb – 9

or 3l – 5b = 6

(2) = > lb + 3b + 2l + 6 = lb + 67

or 2l + 3b = 61

from these equations, l = 17 m

**2) Answer (C)**

l: 2l + 2b = 5 : 18

l : 2b = 5 : 8

l : b = 5 : 4

**3) Answer (D)**

The interior angle of the polygon = 180 – 72 = 108

Let there be x sides in the polygon.

108 x = (2x – 4)* 90

So, x = 5 (pentagon)

Sum of the interior angles = 5 x 108 = 540

**4) Answer (B)**

Summation of the opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral is equal to 180 degrees.

**5) Answer (A)**

As we know that summation of the interior angles of a triangle = (n-2)*180 where n is the number of sides of the polygon

Hence, sum will be = 1440

**6) Answer (A)**

Let’s say length and breadth of the rectangle are 5x and 2x

So perimeter will be 14x = 28 meter ; x = 2 meter

Hence, length = 10 meter ; breadth = 4 meter

Area = 40 sq.meter

**7) Answer (B)**

The length of the hypotenuse will be =$\sqrt{ 6^2 + 8^2} = 10$

**8) Answer (A)**

The area of the bigger rectangle is 18 x 13

The are of the smaller rectangle is 16 x 11

The required value is 18 x 13 – 16 x 11 = 58 sq.m

**9) Answer (B)**

The sides of the rectangle are 48 and 14 (by Pythagoras theorem)

Total cost of grass cutting is 48 x 14 x 24 = 16,128

**10) Answer (D)**

Let there be x pentagons and 7-x hexagons.

Total sides = 5x + 6(7-x) = 38

Solving we get x = 4

**11) Answer (A)**

The number of ways of drawing straight lines from 23 points is $ C_2^{23}$

solving, we get the number of ways = $\frac{23!}{21!2!}$

= 253

**12) Answer (B)**

Let the length of the rectangle be L and the breadth of the rectangle be B.

(L-4)(B+2) = LB – 18 => 2L – 4B – 8 = -18 => 4B – 2L = 10

(L+2)(B-2) = LB – 14 => 2B – 2L – 4 = -14 => 2L – 2B = 10

Solving the two equations, we get, B = 10 cm and L = 15 cm

So, the original breadth of the rectangle is 10 cm.

**13) Answer (B)**

Let the length be 3k. Perimeter = 16k

Let the length be L

So, 2L + 2*3k = 16k => 2L + 6k = 16k => L = 5k

So, ratio of length to breadth = 5k : 3k = 5 : 3

**14) Answer (D)**

Exterior angle + Interior angle = 180

=> 3*(Interior angle) = 180

=> Interior angle = 180/3 = 60 degrees

Interior angle of a regular polygon = (2n – 4)*90/n = 60

=> 180n – 360 = 60n

=> 120n = 360

=> n = 3

**15) Answer (C)**

Area of the original triangle = ½ * Base * Height

Area of the new triangle = ½ * (2*Base) * (2*Height) = 4 * (1/2 * Base * Height) = 4 * Area of the original triangle

So, the required ratio = 4 : 1
